My paternal grandmother (nee Elizabeth Lark) was Cornish and her (very faded) baptism certificate states that she was baptised on the 14th November 1856 in (what looks like) "Lanteague" in the parish of South HIll. The minister's name is also unreadable. Does Lanteague or a similar name ring bells with anyone please, I would love to know ? My family history researches are extensive but this is still a mystery. She and my grandfather John Myers settled in his home town of Dalton-in-Furness in what is now Cumbria. Many thanks.

My wife and I have just returned from spending a week on Glenn Silva Farm, we were searching for my Great Grandfathers grave, his name was William Ash and he died aged 29 in Liskeard, he was a minor at Redmoor Mine, he married my Great Grandmother Hanna Warne from Southill and we visited the church where she was baptised. We have now traced both Ash & Warne families that go back in the area to 1794 and they left for London in 1911, amazing to see your family history. We continue our search.

My husbands great great grandfather was Sampson Widger (1789-1875) who lived at South Hill, we are visiting cornwall next year and hope to visit the area.
Have you any information about the family and are there any Widgers still living locally?
thank you for your help

Hi, I'm visiting South Hill on my way down to meet my husband and son as they complete a cycle from John O'Groats to Lands End. I'm staying nearby and am planning on visiting South Hill to acquaint myself with the village and area where my ancestors (Sleemans) came from. Does anyone know if there are any gravestones or records that are easily accessible for my brief visit?
regards

My ancestor sampson widger lived at Golberdon. He was born at St Cleer about 1790 and was living at Goberdon at the time of the 1851 census. Can anyone tell me if there are Widgers still living in the vicinity?

(maiden name Buckingham) Came across this link via Drawn to the Valley artists group. What a great idea. Started to bring back memories of the village and some of the names that would have been familiar in our household as a child. Keep up the connections from where ever you are in the world.

My dad, Samuel WERRIN, died AT 92 earlier this year on my birthday, 16/01/12. My grandparents, Sidney and Ethel (nee LEE) lived at Egypt for as long as I can remember, and the family before that. My aunt Emily (became JONAS) moved down the road from Golberdon to live there afterwards with her family. Just beginning to start some family history searching so if anybody in the area has any memories I would love to hear from you. I have a huge family bible which suggests some links to family names WILLAMS and MITCHELL.

Just a quick note to say that Les Doidge will be very sadly missed; his friendliness and energy made him a great person to know (even when, like me, you're over 60 years apart in age!), and he definitely had one of the best Cornish accents I've ever heard! Definitely someone who should go down in South Hill parish history.

My grandparents were the Janes who lived in the South Hill School house for many years and I was born in Callington, daughter of George Jane and Jean Standing. I've been living in the US since I was 14 (1966) but my daughter Kerenza visited South Hill this summer with our cousins and was given a wonderful tour of the church. I actually have a picture of her sitting at the organ that my mother used to play and my grandfather hand pump. I want to thank those who put the parish records on line as I've been able to trace the Janes and the Mitchells back many generations. I hope to come back and visit myself someday - I actually have a secret dream to retire to Cornwall, I still consider it "home" as my best childhood memories took place there, many hours being spent wandering the fields, woods and lanes around South Hill and playing in the hay barn at Brocks' farm.

This is the first time I've looked at the South Hill website and it appears to be a lovely area.
According to her baptism certificate my paternal grandmother Ellizabeth Lark was baptised at Lanteague in the parish of South Hill on the 14th November 1856, the daughter of John (a miner) and Rebecca (nee Allen) Lark. The minister's name is undecipherable. Can anyone tell me where or what "Lanteague" was, please ? Was it a farm or a house. I don't know what religious denomination they were and can't find the event in parish registers for the area on the website. Can anyone help please. Many thanks.
